neomeruru: (the end is nigh)
The new issue of [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetsu is live, and oh boy, is it ever a good one. They got an astounding number of stories this time around, and so many of my favorite authors. I haven't read them all yet, but here are some I can recommend by brand name alone:

* Bright Mouths by [livejournal.com profile] ladysisyphus
* The Stone Fox and the Bloody Hands by [livejournal.com profile] ladysisyphus and [livejournal.com profile] drmoonpants
* Unidentified Friendship Objective by our very own [livejournal.com profile] jibrailis
* Love Will Tear Us Apart (or, The Modern Pygmalion) by [livejournal.com profile] drmoonpants and I am looking forward to this one because apparently it's disturbing and The Wilderness was SO AMAZINGLY DISTURBING.

This is one I did read, because I illustrated it:

* El Presidio Rides North by my homegirl [livejournal.com profile] beeblebabe is going to be the best story you've read all year. I laughed, I... okay, I laughed some more. Then when I was done laughing, I realized I was in love with a sassy cholo and his twee little piece of ass. And I like the art I did:







And finally, there's the one that I wrote:

* Tourniquet is a story about unnatural biological disasters, stubborn boys in love, less limbs per capita than Star Wars, and a huge fucking helping of explicit zombie blowjobs. I also made a fanmix, which you can download in the author notes. Click it! Or just read the story! Or read the story and come back for the fanmix! Or don't read the story, that's fine, but I might make a sad face at you.

It was illustrated by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] lihsa, who made not one, by three pictures for it, which as an illustrator myself I have to tell you that is pretty damn amazing.

As always, I humbly ask you to go take a look at the issue and read and comment on even just one story, because it would mean a lot to the authors! I know there's a lot to choose from this time, but those ones up there are a pretty good place to start!
